antimony at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Semimetallic to metallic chemical element (see metal), chemical symbol Sb, atomic number 51. Of its various allotropes, the most common is a lustrous, bluish, brittle, flaky solid. In nature antimony occurs chiefly as the gray sulfide mineral stibnite, Sb2S3. Pure antimony metal has no important uses, but its alloys and compounds are extremely useful. Some antimony alloys have the rare quality of expanding on solidifying; these used for castings and for type metal. Alloys with lead are used in car batteries, bullets, and cable sheaths. Antifriction alloys with tin and lead (babbitt metals) are used as components of machine bearings. Antimony compounds (valences 3, 4, and 5) are widely used as flame retardants in paints, plastics, rubber, and textiles; others are used as paint pigments.

Antimony at English => English (Websters 1913) Of Explained:

Antimony \An"ti*mo*ny\ (?; 112), n. [LL. antimonium, of unknown
origin.] (Chem.)
An elementary substance, resembling a metal in its appearance
and physical properties, but in its chemical relations
belonging to the class of nonmetallic substances. Atomic
weight, 120. Symbol, Sb.

Note: It is of tin-white color, brittle, laminated or
crystalline, fusible, and vaporizable at a rather low
temperature. It is used in some metallic alloys, as
type metal and bell metal, and also for medical
preparations, which are in general emetics or
cathartics. By ancient writers, and some moderns, the
term is applied to native gray ore of antimony, or
stibnite (the stibium of the Romans, and the sti`mmi of
the Greeks, a sulphide of antimony, from which most of
the antimony of commerce is obtained. Cervantite,
senarmontite, and valentinite are native oxides of
antimony.
